TP Rehenesh the latest to sign for determined Kerala
Kerala Blasters FC have confirmed the signing of former NorthEast United FC goalkeeper, TP Rehenesh. The club announced the move via their Twitter handle on Wednesday, thereby adding a third shot-stopper to their squad following earlier captures of Bilal Khan and Shibinraj Kunniyil.
The 26-year-old made 49 appearances for the Highlanders over a span of five years. Last season, Rehenesh barely featured for Eelco Schattorie’s men, but did impress in the Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) 2017-18 term. He first appeared for the club in 2014 while on loan from Shillong Lajong.
Apart from his extensive Hero ISL experience, the goalkeeper has also represented some of the other top clubs from India. He began his career in the Hero I-league with ONGC in 2012. The following campaign, he moved to Mumbai Tigers and then on loan to Rangdajied United. In total, the new Blasters stopper made 37 appearances in the 2013-14 season.
Subsequently moving to Shillong Lajong, he played in 15 matches for the club before moving to NorthEast on a permanent transfer. In between his four-year spell with the John Abraham-owned club, Rehenesh twice headed on loan to East Bengal FC, first in 2016 and then in 2017.
